From NYT on Trump and Russia:

WASHINGTON — For much of the summer, the F.B.I. pursued a widening investigation into a Russian role in the American presidential campaign. Agents scrutinized advisers close to Donald J. Trump, looked for financial connections with Russian financial figures, searched for those involved in hacking the computers of Democrats, and even chased a lead — which they ultimately came to doubt — about a possible secret channel of email communication from the Trump Organization to a Russian bank.
Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government.

Glad you are amused, sorry you aren’t a better student of history. Just about every despot in the modern era was elected…and the mistake isn’t usually corrected until the damage is done or the check and balance has been eliminated.

You are right about increasing voting. The fewer the votes the better for republicans…again that’s how it is supposed to work right? Limit the voting time, polling place and ballot access. Still waiting on all the examples of voter fraud. I gave you pretty much the one so maybe I saved the time.

Of course it isn’t someone like me who is gonna feel the pain…With the exception of the stock market, it is the same “poorly educated” as trump said, who voted for him that will feel it when their health insurance gets revoked or they die from poison in their water due to laxing of environmental standards. Just like Jesus wanted.

I agree with William Weld, yeah that Libertarian idiot, Trump was uniquely dangerous. But what would that two term republican governor know, or every living Secretary of State, or president know. They only have experience and what does that matter.

I’ll also still be here when your buddy Assange starts dumping stuff on your boy. I am sure he’ll be your friend then. Amazing how people that claim to be “real Americans” are so supportive of the wishes of a Russian despot or a Scandinavian rapist anarchist hiding out in an embassy.

Yeah cause why would the Russians want an inward looking America with a sympathetic leader with self admitted financial ties at a time they are quietly and not so quietly expanding?

But hey what would every intelligence service the United States know?
It definitely was some kids in their moms basement that hacked only one political side. Makes sense.

Ronald Reagan would roll over on his grave if he saw his party being so cozy with a Russian dictator…but hey he wouldn’t get thru a primary today so who cares what he would think.

Are you referring to the last 8 years when we had a President working around the check and balance of Congress to rule with Executive Orders - a phone and a pen? The time where the IRS targeted political opponents to silence them? Where the Department of Justice was politicized? Where the Chief Executive decided to avoid the legislative branch by not enforcing properly passed laws? You’re right; he was elected…..

What about Obama getting on his knees for an Iranian dictator?  Nooooo, nothing can TRUMP Russian ties.  Come on man.  How much money did we send to Iran on Obama’s direction?  Did you and Big C fly the 463l pallet there yourself?

yes I did. The humus was great but the women weren’t my style.

I disagree with your characterization of all that stuff, and your analysis that whatever your perceived grievance isn’t gonna be multiplied in a trump administration, but am unable to type on my phone right now to argue.

Maybe the fact that the leader of his transition team had his subordinates change the lanes on a bridge to punish a political opponent should be a clue….but again fact free election.

If only history was a guide…but hey! You might have to go to college to know that.

I guess you didn’t get my Reichstag reference and are not familiar with central or South American history or current events and have never been to Africa. Oh yeah European history too. Other than countries those continents really no where.

I also see the philosophy of Star Wars is lost on this crowd too. Y’all never were one much for references.

Yeah and he was a Swedish resident hiding in an Ecuadorian embassy from a Scandinavian rape charge. Seems like a common theme of people “can do whatever they want” as The Donald likes to say.

This is a reaction against a government not responsible to the people, not in favor of it. This whole election was about a government on both sides of the aisle governing without the “consent of the governed.” When people feel that, it’s “the Right of the People to alter…it.” It seems that those in politics should’ve learned your lesson about history.

I think they believed enough in the system that it would not let an uniformed populace vote against their own interests based on insubstantiated clickbait and innuendo inferred from foreign national meddling, and elect an unprepared and uniformed con man, to use the words of one Marco Rubio who can’t be trusted with Twitter.

Little did they know it would be the electoral college and not the popular vote that did this. James Madison would be horrified…

I hope you like the coming recession. I know I’m not gonna lose my job cause we are about to go “bomb the shit” out of people. How presidential.

Still no one answering what The Trump campaign would be spewing this morning if he won the popular vote and lost the electoral college. I am sure he would have graciously conceded like Hillary did.

Weird too how the system unrigged itself…

Herein lies the reason for the vote. They are tired of people looking down on them and trying to tell them what’s in their best interests as though they know better. They have their own minds and can see that the signature best interest accomplishment - Obamacare - has turned out to be far from it.

Well they are about to lie in the bed they made…I hope any of them with cancer or any other illness have a good bankruptcy attorney or are independently wealthy cause they are about to become uninsurable again.

Again just how Jesus wanted it to be.
